Frequently Asked Questions
Where should the BiteFighter™ LED String Lights be placed?
There are numerous configurations that can be used and are dependent on the type of space. For best results, we recommend a perimeter setup (the square setup depicted below), placing lights no more than 10 feet off the ground.
How long is one strand of BiteFighter™ LED String Lights?
One strand is 36 feet long. The lighted length of the BiteFighter™ LED String Lights is 33 feet.
How do I hang up BiteFighter™ LED String Lights?
BiteFighter™ LED String Lights should be hung using supporting hardware such as hooks, support mounts and/or a guide wire (not included). To span less than 24 feet between supports, we recommend installing supporting hardware at regular intervals. To span more than 24 feet between supports, use a guide wire. Be sure to not pinch or damage the BiteFighter™ LED String Lights when installing and do not block any LED bulb sockets or Mosquito Repellent Diffuser Shades.
How many BiteFighter™ LED String Lights can I use at once?
You can connect up to eight BiteFighter™ LED string lights from end to end.
Can BiteFighter™ LED String Lights be left outside all year round?
Yes, the BiteFighter™ LED String Lights can be left outside all year round.
Where do I find replacement Mosquito Repellent Pods?
You can find replacement Repellent Pods
for your BiteFighter™ LED String Lights on tikibrand.com under “Outdoor Lighting” and “Fuel & Wood Pellets.”
Is the fuel in the Mosquito Repellent Pods the same as what goes in the torches?
No. The repellent in the Repellent Pods is not the same as torch fuel. The active ingredient in the Repellent Pods is a proprietary formulation with Metofluthrin. The pods are for one-time use and not refillable. They are not for use with TIKI® Brand torch fuel.
What is the point of the green balls in the Mosquito Repellent Pods?
The green balls in the repellency pods are a visual indicator to alert you when the fuel is getting low. When the balls get close to the bottom of the Repellent Pod, it is time to order more Repellent Pods.
How long do the Mosquito Repellent Pods last?
The Repellent Pods last for 200 hours and provide one season of repellency. This assumes a season as 90 days with an average of 2.4 hours per day.
Can the Mosquito Repellent Pods get wet?
Yes, the product is designed for outdoor use. The Repellent Pods should remain installed in the repellent diffuser shades and should be capped for storage if the lights are taken down.
How do I remove the Mosquito Repellent Pods?
To remove the Repellent Pods, pinch the sides of the Repellent Diffuser Shade and twist. You will notice that the Repellent Pod spin freely once secured. This is by design.
Can I remove the Mosquito Repellent Pod to add additional fuel?
No, the Repellent Pods should not be disassembled and refueled. Once a Repellent Pod is out of fuel, dispose of the pod per your local municipality’s rules and regulations. New Repellent Pods can be found on our website under “Outdoor Lighting” and “Fuel & Wood Pellets”.
Fire Pits & Wood Packs
How do I start a fire using the Wood Pack?
Place the Wood Pack flat on the cone inside the Fire Pit and light each corner. The bag will burn quickly, spilling the wood pellets into the bottom of the Fire Pit. No need to stir; the fire will fill the Fire Pit within 5 minutes and remain for approximately 30 minutes. As the flames die down, add another Wood Pack for another 30 minutes of burn time, or add seasoned cut firewood.
Do I need lighter fluid or newspaper to start the Wood Pack?
No, simply light the bag in each corner to start the fire.
Can I cook over the Fire Pit and Wood Pack?
Yes, if you follow all instructions, warnings, and good fire safety practices. If cooking over the Fire Pit and Wood Pack, wait until flames die down and the wood pellets begin to form glowing coals.
What is the difference in flame height between the Wood Packs and wood logs?
The TIKI® Brand Wood Pack creates a large flame that can reach a height of 3 feet above the top of the Fire Pit and lasts for roughly 30 minutes. If using wood logs, the flame height can vary depending on type of wood, whether or not it is seasoned, and how many pieces are used, but typically does not get as large as the flame from the TIKI® Brand Wood Pack.
Can I use the Wood Pack in my grill?
The Wood Packs are for Fire Pit use only. They are not intended for grills, smokers, pellet burners, stoves or any other burning system.
How does the airflow technology work?
The internal airflow system within the Fire Pit creates a low-smoke experience that ultimately is more enjoyable.
Can I control the height of the flame?
Sort of. The Wood Pack is designed to maintain a full and consistent flame for approximately 30 minutes. If you desire more control over the flame size, you can use wood logs and add more or less based on preference.
Can I put the Fire Pit on my deck?
No, the Fire Pit should not be used closer than 15 feet to any walls, structures or buildings, and should not be placed on any combustible surface such as wood, dry grass, leaves or mulch. Flames may reach a height of 3 feet above the top of the Fire Pit. Further, the Fire Pit should not be used under a patio roof, any low hanging branches, trellises or overhangs of any kind, including covered porches.
What is the center cone for?
The center cone is designed to create optimal burning conditions and airflow. The cone is what helps the Wood Pack ignite quickly, burn evenly and deliver the predictable approximately 30 minute burn duration. You can place traditional firewood over the cone as well, up to 16 inches long so it fits within the Fire Pit bowl. If you will not be using a Wood Pack and want more room for firewood, you can start the fire without the cone (remove it before any burning begins). It can also be removed for cleaning.
Is it ok to use wood logs in the Fire Pit?
Yes. For best results, use dry, seasoned wood that has been split and cut to a length of 16 inches or less, so it fits within the Fire Pit bowl.
If I want to add wood logs to the Fire Pit after using a Wood Pack, do I have to remove the center cone?
DO NOT remove the center cone after a fire has been started with a Wood Pack. You can add dry, seasoned wood that has been split and cut to a length of 16 inches or less onto the fire. We do not recommend overfilling the Fire Pit to the point where your wood logs are no longer contained within the Fire Pit bowl. You should find that 3 to 4 pieces of wood logs fit comfortably within the Fire Pit with the cone inserted.
Does the Fire Pit cool down instantly after approximately 30 minutes?
No, cooling time may vary depending on use. But in case of emergency, stand back at least 5 feet and spray with a garden hose to avoid hot steam and debris. Spray coals continuously for five minutes or until coals have cooled. Empty ash pan and dry the pit to ensure rust doesn’t form.
How do I clean out the ash from the bottom of the Fire Pit?
Once the Fire Pit has completely cooled, remove the center cone and carefully sweep ash inside the Fire Pit through the bottom holes. Then, pull out the ash pan by its handle and dispose of the ash per your local laws/regulations.
How often do I need to empty the ash catcher pan?
The pan should be emptied after every use.
How long do I have to wait until I put the cover on?
If you used only TIKI® Brand Wood Packs, this should take approximately 6-8 hours and is designed to completely consume leaving minimal ash. If you used traditional firewood logs, times will vary depending on the amount of wood used and consumed. Be sure to clean out all ash to ensure there are no embers left before putting the cover on.
How do I clean up and store the Fire Pit?
First, let it cool down completely. Empty the ash pan by pulling it out and safely disposing of ashes. Clean with dish soap or baking soda and rinse clean with water. Do not use oven cleaner or abrasive cleaners as they will damage the finish. Thoroughly dry the Fire Pit with a soft cloth to prevent rust from forming. Use the provided cover to protect the Fire Pit from the elements and store it for future use.
Is the Fire Pit durable?
The inner bowl and top ring are made of stainless steel to withstand the most extreme heat. The Fire Pit is also powder coated with a high temperature coating to protect your pit for years to come. With a purchase of a Fire Pit, a cloth cover is included to aid against the elements when your Fire Pit is not in use.
Is installation of the Fire Pit required?
Very little. While wearing gloves, remove the Fire Pit from the box, remove the ash pan, place the foot ring on the ground where you want to place the Fire Pit, and screw the legs into the pre-threaded holes on the Fire Pit. It should take just a few minutes and all tools and hardware are provided. Re-insert the ash pan, make sure it's in a safe location, and fire it up!
What if something on the Fire Pit breaks?
TIKI® Brand Fire Pits are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for up to 2 years from the date of purchase. You have to show that you have used the product under normal conditions and for its intended purpose in a residential backyard setting. Call 1-888-473-1088, and we will provide either a replacement Fire Pit or replacement of the broken/damaged parts (proof of purchase is required).

What exactly are the Wood Packs made of?
The patent-pending TIKI® Wood Pack is made from wood pellets mixed with a starter fluid and sealed in the easy light bag. The pellets are made from sawdust that is sourced as a by-product from several manufacturing processes (lumber, window frames, hardwood flooring, etc.). The result is an energy-dense and sustainable way to light your fire.
Does the Wood Pack crackle and snap like a log fire?
No, the irregularities in wood logs cause the snapping and crackling. The wood pellets in the Wood Pack don't contain the irregularities that are found in wood logs.
Can I use part of the Wood Pack and save the rest for a future fire?
No, the Wood Packs are designed for a one-time use.
Where do I find my Fire Pit or Wood Pack date code?

Light each corner with a long stemmed match or lighter. The bag will burn quickly, creating a large flame within five minutes. As the flames die down, add seasoned cut firewood to the fire.
What is the difference between the Wood Pack and Large Flame Starter Packs?

The difference is that the Starter Pack is used to quickly ignite a fire while using wood logs.
